, done help me. mop squeegee. (laughter) fox news chairman and goblin king roger ailes wanted somebody else as "the washington post" recently reported in the spring of 2011 ailes asked a fox news analyst headed to afghanistan to pass on his thoughts to general david petraeus, resign from the military and run for president. and ailes wasn't just encouraging petraeus to run, he put a serious offer on the table. which was secretly taped i assume, by paula broadwell hiding under the table. (laughter) listen petraeus respond to ailes offer. >> tell him if i ever ran, but i won't, but if i ever ran i would take him up on his offer. >> okay, all right. >> he would quit fox. >> all right. >> and bankroll it or maybe i'm confused and that was rupert. >> i think one is bankrolling it. >> big boss is bankrolling it. rogg certificate going to run and the rest of russ going to be here in-house. >> stephen: okay so, if petraeus ran for president murdoch would pay for it, ailes would manage it, and fox news would sell it though their audience. now if you think about it, a news network choosing the ca
about bribing hacking, activity throughout their newspapers in britain now this where roger ails want petraeus to run for the presidency. >> here's the thing with fox news. the only thing that makes them unethical is that they call themselves news. if they just said fox politics, this would not even be something that we could talk about. otherwise, they really should not be called, they're an entertainment organization that i guess very effective in politicking. they should just take the news out of their name. >> michael, they are entitled to encourage people, i suppose right? >> right. the ironic thing is that at fox news the head of c.n.n. or nbc would never have been able to do this. roger ails, here we have him trying to influence somebody to run on the republican ticket. this isn't the first time. he similarly urged chris christie to run, as well. >> i think what we're seeing here is that we understand and view and judge fox and murdoch by an entirely different metric. >> right. >> tina witness as you said, they are over they political therefore those of us who see them don't ex
, the message from that analyst at fox to patreaus was roger ailes a high-level executive at fox wanted the general to run for president and just listen to some of the audio. it features k.t. mcfarland a national security analyst at fox news and of course general david patreaus, this conversation was had back in 2011. just before he was named to run the cia. i'm being told we don't have that audio ready to go. let me read to you a little bit of what was said during that conversation as reported by "the washington post." one point, mcfarland says, quote, the other thing was just directly advised to me from roger ailes and patreaus says i'm not running. we do have a little bit of the audio. let's play that for you. >> the other thing directly advice to roger ailes is -- >> i'm not running. >> that's not the question at this point. he says, if you're offered chairman, take it. if you're offered anything else, don't take it. resign in six months and run for president. okay. and i know you're not running for president, but at some point, when you go to new york next, you may want to chat wit
of trouble it's lately, but also the chairman of fox news channel roger ailes. there is no question that petraeus was a hero of the afghan war, so it may not come as any surprise that according to "the washington post" he was approached to run for president. but it's how he was approached and who approached him that may have crossed a line. a fox news analyst named kathleen mcfarland was on a trip to afghanistan when a proposal she made to the general was caught on tape. she told general petraeus that fox news chief roger ailes would do whatever he could to get petraeus elected. she even started out by asking a very strange question coming from a news organization. >> he loves you and everybody at fox loves you. so what i'm supposed to directly from him to you, through me, is, first of all, is there anything fox is doing, right or wrong, that you want to tell us to do differently? >> is there anything you want to tell us to do differently? this is a surrogate for a national news organization asking a potential presidential candidate and someone who is in the middle of prosecuting a
? the network's founder, roger ailes, wanted then general david petraeus, to make a run for the republican presidential nomination. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is joining us now. pretty i guess bombastic report out there, with a lot of detail. >> that's right. this goes back to the fact that some republicans were longing for alternatives to the official gop candidates in the 2012 race, and as an audio recording reported by "the washington post" reveals, fox news chief roger ailes appears to step out of the traditional role of news executive to recruit a candidate, david petraeus. before the affair that just last month forced david petraeus to step down as director of the cia, he was so popular in republican circles that roger ailes, the chairman of fox news, tried to enlist the four-star general to run for president back in 2011. according to a recorded conversation obtained by washington post reporter and author bob woodward. >> i'm not running. >> reporter: making the pitch is katie mcfarland. she tells the general that ailes was willing to give up his job at the ne
. what about dade petraeus for president? apparently roger ailes wanted him to run four president. listen to a conversation between a fox news contributor and david petraeus in 2011. watch. >> joy: you know, roger ailes says that it is a big joke. do you think he was joking? >> john: i would have liked to have seen him run before all of this happened. it is deeply embarrassing, discussing this with a british person, by the way, no offense james bond movie opens, our top spy has to resign for sex with one person. >> i did find it -- the head of the c.i.a. relationship with a woman and did it by gmail and it was found out by the fbi. it makes you wonder what the fbi is doing to the rest of us. >> so slippery, i don't want him as president. >> but the fact that he had a little bit of a different side and he maybe had this woman on the side, clinton left the white house with the biggest approval rating in the history of the world. maybe it would work in his favor. >> john: if you can't keep an affair secret in washingto
of the united states against barack obama and if he did so, roger ails said he would quit fox news and run his campaign. how about it. don't tell me fox news is not the broadcast arm of the republican party. that proves it! all right. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here. first we get the latest current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. so far the president seems to be staying strong when it comes to taxes. as you all know by now house republicans sent in a fiscal cliff counter offer yesterday but the white house is calling it no good. i want to give you an idea of where the two sides stand right now. boehner's new plan would raise $2.2 trillion. now it would extend the bush tax cuts for everyone and yes that does include the top 2%. and it would instead raise $800 billion in revenue from so-called tax reform and that's what we mean when we talk about capping deductions and closing loopholes. the rest of the money comes from cuts
house is this roger ailes just kind of playing games and a little -- this is just a temporary retrieve because people aren't that interested in presidential politics anymore but they'll stay around and they'll be eventually be back on fox? >> well, say what you will about roger ailes. we know he's a genius when it comes to programming and trying to shift fox news to bring in ratings and he did this after the 2008 election. fox's ratings have been slipping during the end of the bush years and they had to reposition themselves. they went with glenn beck right around inauguration day and the party in 2009. that became the identity of the network. so now we see fox again as trying to figure out well, what happened in 2012 and these guys clearly -- you don't want to tie the network. where are they going to go next? it seems like they're -- morris and rove, for at least the first part, given how badly they did in predicting the outcome of the 2012 election, they won't be around much. we'll see who fox starts putting on th
't know. she certainly had a conversation with roger ailes. >> she certainly is representing roger ailes. >> seems that way. go ahead callie, i'm sorry. >> i think it's been fed into the link, whether it's at dinner or behind the scenes, to me this underscores that. this has been a complaint by many over the years. >> in other news, there was a piece that says senior management has to give permission when two of the most prominent fox come member taters are on. they are karl rove and dick morris who, shall we say, turned out to be wrong. will it's take a look. >> i don't know what the outcome is going to be, but we've got be careful about calling things when we have 91 votes separating the two candidates and a quarter of the vote yet to count. >> romney will win this election by five to ten points in the popular vote and will carry more than 300 elect torl votes. >> so erik, are karl and dick being put in the penalty box? >> i don't know. it was on his website. he said, i'll be on twice next week. it seems they're having to do some pr work. i think that's good. i don't think dick morris
that karl rove can't outfox. and it is roger ailes who is his boss at fox news channel. according to a report in "new york" magazine, ails is having all of his shows ask for permission before using karl rove and dick morris as political guests. apparently roger ailes was not happy with the baseless cheerleading and second guessing that karl rove and dick morris were doing and a fox spokeswoman told "new york" magazine that the rule is in effect because the election is over. it is nice to see someone on the right recognize the election is over. maybe they should tell the house republicans, too. so, it is not very often we see the house of representatives united but today they actually came very close. texas republican louie gohmert was the only member of the house to vote against a law stripping
of those in the world. >> howard kurtz, good to see you, sir. roger ailes tells the post, yes, he did tell k.t. mcfarland, made the offer but more of a -- but more of a joke. do you buy that? >> well, the reason i don't completely buy is because ailes is not denying it and as i've reported in the past, he is a former republican strategist, has a history of meeting privately with people like mitt romney and other candidates on the gop side when they were r running. he likes to keep his fingers in the political pie a little bit. >> why would he care? what would be in it for roger ailes? . >> i don't think that's the way to look at it. roger ailes i know really cares about the country. he's made no secret of his conservative views. he may have believed general petraeus was a great general, would be a great leader for this country. the problem comes in is one of perception. we don't know because this is just an audiotape involving a fox contributor, we don't know how serious a courtship this was. but fox is a news organization that covers petraeus and politics and if somebody from, i don't kno
confirms that fox news chief roger ailes is limiting karl rove and dick morris's air time and programming head bill schein seconded that saying the election is over. karl rove has barely been on air. he questioned the network's calling the election for president obama. >> dick morris did say he was excited to be able to spend more time with his hookers. >> if you are a new orleans hornets fan -- >> new orleans har lots. >> if you are a new orleans hornets fan, your jersey may be a collector term. they are changing their name to the new orleans pel cans, tom benson who owns the saints said he wanted to change the name. >> did you get the story off of the on yun? >> it's true. i don't know why they would name them the pelicans. >> because the pel cans because the brown pelicans the brown pel pelican is the state bird of louisiana. >> the lakers, the name from minnesota, yeah. i think theat president obama should intervene here the new orleans basketball team should be the new orleans sxraz. they should take that back from utah because who equa

roger ailes thought i'll give it a shot. the news analyst katie mcfarland, and she had more--in fact, petraeus said rupert murdoch, the owner of news corp, also reached out to him. >> you might want to chat with roger and rupert mourdock for that matter. >> cenk: rupert is after me, too, i bet. who ising going to bankroll it? who is going to lead the campaign? let's sort it out. >> bankroll it? >> maybe i'm confusing that with rupert. >> i think bankrolling is the big boss. the big boss is bankrolling it. the rest of us are going to be your in-house. >> okay. >> we're all set. >> cenk: yeah, they're all set. they were ready to go, man. they have this little thing hatched up. they send in somebody to "interview" him and give him what they would like. it's amazing. it's amazing. and then if doesn't just go one way. it goes both ways. petraeus was also asked what would you like us to do on fox news? watch. >> i love roger. >> i know, and he loves you. and i'm supposed to say directly from him to you through me is first of all is there anything that fox is doing right or wrong that you
in the hands of "the washington post" and why? is somebody out to get roger ails at fox news? somebody out to dance on the grave of general petraeus's career? and why did "the washington post" run this in the style section. this is a lot of things. stylish is hard to see as one of them. for all of these reasons, this audio recording is rather salacious news. but buried under that, there's something newsworthy here. not just because the whole thing is juicy and weird and about a sex scandal and in about a weird part of the media and weird part of the republican party. if you listen to the rest of the tape, what you get to it is general petraeus turning down this kind offer from the fox news chairman to run for president and have fox news support him all the way. but in the way he politely turned down roger's advice, general petraeus said something that i think might be very important about how the u.s. government works now. and why a man such as himself might want a particular job in washington at a time like this. listen to this part of the tape. this is where general petraeus makes his ar
